    Has this been done recently? If not please discuss...

    Maybe my favorite single issue of any comic has to be G1 #25 where megatron battles the predacons for half the issue eventually to defeat them combined as Predaking. Megatron's boasting and the predacons teamwork really set this single issue apart when compared to other "battle" issues from the G1 run. Throughout the fight it looks like Megatron might be outmatched (although he never believes this) as the predacons literally tear him apart, but in the end he triumphs which for me really cemented megs as my favorite transformer, and this as my favorite comic.

    Other battles I really enjoyed:

    1.)Galvatron vs. Rodimus and Death's Head in Fallen Angel (UK)
    2.) Ratchet vs. Megatron G1 #7-#8
    3.) Galvatron vs. everyone in Time Wars (UK)

    1-Legacy of Unicron- The massive Autobot/Decepticon Conflict. Felt like one of the few times in the comic that there were thousands of Transformers involved on either side of the war. (UK) Probably my single favourite battle scene.

    2-Galvatron Vs. Ultra Magnus (Target: 2006)

    3-The Time Wars

    Issue 12 of the original Marvel comics...

    Optimus vs Soundwave and his mini-tapes...and finally Shockwave! A good climax to a rather entertaining story arc where the Autobots were repeatingly owned by the Decepticons!

    I really liked that one too, except in the Titan reprints they mangled the main splash page up and it was kind of distracting.

    Anyways, my favorites:

    - Unicron vs Everyone - Issue #75 of the US Marvel G1 series. A great battle with good dialogue and enough back-and-forth that it wasn't just 'Unicron trashing the TFs while they run around ineffectually' like in the movie.
    - Galvatron vs Ultra Magnus - "Target 2006".
    - Galvatron vs the spacetime continuum - End of "Time Wars".
    - Galvatron II vs Fort Max - Issue #79 of the US Marvel G1 series.
    - Scorponok vs Shockwave - Issues #72 - 73 of the US Marvel G1 series, especially the beginning with Scorponok rising up from the rubble of the base and tossing Shockwave's troops aside.
    - Jhiaxus vs Optimus Prime and Optimus Prime vs The Swarm - Issue #12 of US Marvel G2.
    - Megatron vs Scorponok - Issue #30 (or 29, I forget which) of DW Transformers: Energon.
    - Megatron vs Galvatron - Issue #16 of DW Transformers: Armada, although it was a little cheap that Galvatron's destruction occured off-panel.

    The one that stands out to me the most has been mentioned in Scantron's post: Shockwave and Scorponok's battle in #72.

    My favorite too, for the very same reasons! It was at that point, when he downed Predaking after taking on the Predacons the whole issue, when I acquired a newfound respect for the Decepticon leader.

    Other battles I enjoyed:
    -Marvel issue #12, Prime vs. the Decepticons, finally getting his 'head on straight'
    -Marvel issue #18, Blaster vs. Straxus. Cemented Blaster as one of the baddest bots around
    -Marvel #?, Thunderwing vs. Autobots, final issue of the Matrix Quest. Loved how Nightbeat was the hero.
    -DW ongoing Predaking vs. Bruticus, greatest gestalt battle yet
    -DW #6, Jefire vs. Sunstorm, to the death
    -UK, the Galvatron vs. Magnus battles

    Omega Supreme versus three gestalts may be the first entertaining thing to happen in Art of War, though it's an impression just based on skimming.

    For old stuff, mostly stuff already mentioned -- Legacy, Time Wars, #75, etc. I like the OTT damage in G2 rather a lot too.

    #98 (The Harder They Die) stands out as really supporting the idea that Prime's survived as much by chance as because of the matrix or skill, without taking either of those things away from him.
